Verse:
Ev - 'ry - one who sees you says, fas - cin - a - ting face; heav - ens, what a fig - ure and, "Good - ness me, what grace"
Ev - 'ry - one who meets you must lose his heart I find, then he's sure to lose his mind.
 
Chorus:
You're as pleas - ant as the mom - ing and re - fresh - ing as the rain, is - n't it a pit - y that you're such a scat - ter brain?
When you smile it's so de - light - ful, when you talk it's so in - sane, still it's charm - ing chat - ter, scat - ter brain.
I know I'll end up ap - o - p1ec - tic but theres noth - ing I can do, it's just the same as be - ing in a hur - ri - cane,
And though my life will be too hec - tic I'm so much in love with you, noth - ing else can mat - ter you're my dar - ling scat - ter - brain.
